Massachusetts State Police: Massive Outbreak of Gas Explosions, Fires Destroy Buildings Across 3 Cities

 In Breaking News, Domestic

The Massachusetts State Police have issued an alert for anyone with gas from Columbia Gas to their homes in Lawrence, Andover and North Andover to immediately evacuate. There are in excess of  70 buildings on fire at this time from suspected gas explosions, but the number is expected to grow. According to the MSP, the power company is shutting off ALL power in the three cities to aid in getting the fires under control.

Methuen Police Chief Joseph Solomon said “There are so many fires you can’t even see the sky.”

The Mayor of Lawrence advised all residents to get out if they haven’t done so. The police have been assisting in the evacuations as firefighters do everything in their power to stop the conflagration.   There are searches ongoing to determine if there have been any deaths.

 

 

The gas company is reportedly attempting to depressurize the gas lines in all the affected areas, but that will take some time. Meanwhile more homes are at risk.

Authorities have stated it’s too early to speculate how this happened, but there will be an investigation as soon as the situation is stabilized.

The cities affected are north of Boston.
